22 Nov,2018


Bangladesh skipper Sakib al Hasan won the toss and elected to bat first in the first Test of the two-match series against West Indies at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Thursday. 

Sakib overcame fitness concern to play his first game in any format since September while the home side handed a debut to teenage off-spinner Nayeem Hasan. 
Nayeem joined a four-man spin attack, which also include Sakib, Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan. 
Bangladesh: Imrul Kayes, Soumya Sarkar, Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Sakib al Hasan (Capt), Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Mehedi Hasan, Taijul Islam, Mustafizur Rahman and Nayeem Hasan 
West Indies: Kraigg Brathwaite (Capt), Kieran Powell, Shai Hope, Shimron Hetmyer, Roston Chase, Sunil Ambris, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Jomel Warrican, Kemar Roach and Devendra Bishoo
